The silver one ounce Philharmonic coin was introduced on Friday 1st February 2008. Designed by Thomas Pesendorfer and issued to meet the demand for silver bullion, the Philharmonic has become one of the most popular 1 oz silver coins in Europe. This is an our choice of date product, you will receive coins chosen at random from our stock. We also have various years available if you are looking for a particular year.
The denomination, or face value, is €1.50. The Austrian Mint explains:
"The face value of a bullion coin is appreciably lower than the value of its metal content. The somewhat unusual face value of 1.50 Euro on the new coin is explained by the fact that both the 1 Euro and 2 Euro are reserved for ordinary circulation in Europe."
